Registration Code Format
As of January 2008 all Hobbyist Applications use registration codes in the new two-number format
If you have received a code in the new format and cannot fit it in to the space provided in the application's registration page, then please just download the latest version of the application which will take the new code.
The new code format shows when free updates end. In the code above, you can use any upgrade that is released until Jan 2009 (the 01th month of January)
The first part of the code may be shorter (e.g. 123-200901). If this is the case, then please still enter the part after the hyphen in the second field of the registration page.
If you have an old code and are trying to register a new upgraded version, then please just log in to your account where you will find a code in the new format.
We try to make it easy for you to recover your registration codes. In most cases, all you need is the email address that you originally used to purchase your code. You can then log in to your account and recover your codes.
unfortunately, a [code not received|few stores] don't send us purchase details. In these cases, you will have to contact the store where you purchased to recover your codes.
Most hobbyist software applications are sold with 1 year of free upgrades. After your registration code expires, you can keep using it for your old versions as long as you like, but you will have to purchase a new code if you want to use the latest version.
If you were an earlier purchaser of applications such as Butler and Arrow Launcher (now Initiate), you may have lifetime free updates for the application. This applies to people who purchased before April 2005.
You can generally purchase an upgrade at a discount by logging in to your account. This is actually a completely new purchase which will give you a new code that is valid for another year of free upgrades.
If you wish, you can continue to use your old code with an old version (perhaps on your old device?)
